Work has begun on too similar the establishment of a new path in one of the most popular walking areas of the Yorkshire Dales.
The Three Peaks challenge is taken on by thousands of people every year and its paths sustain a lot of wear and tear as a result.
As a a result, the Yorkshire Dales National Park has begun work on a new alternative section between Pen-y-ghent to Ribbelhead, which crosses Whitber Hill.
The traditional path crosses Horton Moor and Black Dubb Moss, with the large number of walking boots
crossing it causing substantial erosion, with vegetation damaged and the topsoil washed away in places.
Money has been raised through a vote held by the European Outdoor Conservation Association to see which of ten projects would get €30,000 (£24,000) towards its work.
The national park authority's Three Peaks Area Ranger Steve Hastie said: “Diverting walkers away from Black Dubb Moss will give the sensitive peatland habitats and the damaged vegetation time to recover."
Another peaty moor where alternative paths have been established to help control erosion is Kinder Scout, where two different versions of the Pennine Way exist between Edale and the Kinder Downfall.
